Rollins rejoins Phillies against Giants

May 9, 2008 - 12:57 PM Philadelphia (20-16) at San Francisco (14-21) 10:15 pm EDT

SAN FRANCISCO (Ticker) - Jimmy Rollins is close to returning, but thanks to Eric Bruntlett, the Philadelphia Phillies hardly noticed their shortstop was missing.

Rollins rejoins the Phillies on Friday when they open a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants.

The reigning National League MVP, Rollins has been on the disabled list since April 20 with a sprained left ankle.

The Phillies haven't disclosed when the 29-year-old will be activated but he will be with the team in San Francisco.

Despite suffering an 8-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, Bruntlett logged two hits, finishing the four-game series with a .388 average (7-for-18) and eight RBI.

Bruntlett has helped Philadelphia to a 12-6 record without Rollins in the lineup.

Phillies starter Cole Hamels (3-3, 3.10 ERA) allowed just four runs and seven hits in six innings, striking out five but did not factor in the decision during Sunday's 6-5 win against the Giants.

Patrick Misch (0-0, 5.40) tries to help San Francisco end a four-game losing streak when he toes the rubber on Friday.

Misch is making his second start after being called-up from Class AAA Fresno on April 27. He surrendered four runs and five hits in four innings but did not factor in the decision during Friday's 6-5 loss to the Phillies.
